Hi Randy,
Welcome back.
In my personal build list I have two packages that use lcms1.
libmng and gimp.
I noticed that in the BLFS book, lcms is not mentioned as an optional
dependency in gimp. In my last build, gimp was built without lcms. I can
see in the log that it did not detect lcms despite lcms2 being installed
at the time.
